2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition – S:S:L Speed Read

First debuting in the United States in 1986, the Nissan Pathfinder name has grown to become somewhat of an iconic one in a sea of otherwise generic SUV names. Over those 33 years, the Pathfinder has evolved from a hardcore body-on-frame SUV based on the Nissan Hardbody to a curvy, three-row crossover that platform shares with Nissan’s Altima, Maxima and Murano. More of a family hauler than the off-roader of yesteryear, the Pathfinder has lost a lot of what it was known for best – off-road prowess.

All is not lost though. As a nod to the Pathfinder’s off-road roots, Nissan has introduced the new for 2019 Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG E63S Wagon – S:S:L Review

Automotive enthusiasts have long been fighting the anti-Crossover and SUV battle with friends and families. I’ve seen countless conversations online encouraging people to stop buying shapeless blobs of soul crushing driving anti-fun, and instead consider alternatives like the tried and true station wagon. Unfortunately, that battle seems to have been lost with SUVs and Crossovers dominating the new product and sales announcements month after month. In fact, there are currently less than ten true wagons on sale in the US as of this writing. Somewhere along the line, wagons became uncool, and took on a social ranking ever so slightly higher than the minivans of the world.

Thankfully, Mercedes-Benz is still building wagons that prove they’ve never been cooler. In fact, they are out to prove to the world that their 603-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 powered, all-wheel drive, carbon fiber adorned AMG E63S 4Matic Wagon is as good at hauling people and cargo as it is a hauling around a racetrack.
